58. De La Soul "Supa Emcees" (1996)
Producer: De La Soul
Album: Stakes Is High
Label: Tommy Boy/Warner Bros.
"Supa Emcees" intends to trumpet the fact that Pos and Dave have earned the right to consider themselves elite lyricists, and it succeeds. It also demonstrates that they are perfectly capable of crafting dope tracks without Prince Paul. Favorite line: "While you others represent, I present my rep."
